Air France suspended its flights between Paris and Caracas in February 2019 due to the security situation in Venezuela.
“Air France follows the situation in real time and will inform its customers of any evolution of its flight program,” a source told Efe at the time. He stressed that for the airline the safety of its users and employees is its absolute imperative.
The measure was taken when a group of deputies from the Venezuelan opposition left Caracas for the state of Táchira, where aid destined to alleviate the severe crisis in the country was being stored.
What does ALAV say?
Humberto Figuera, president of the Venezuelan Airline Association, said this Friday on Circuito Onda that expects Air France to resume operations towards Venezuela. In addition, he pointed out that Aerolineas Argentinas and possibly Avianca are expected to do so in the short term.
He said still there is no information that American Airlines returns to the country, but talks are ongoing.
On Thursday, after more than two years of suspension due to the pandemic, a TAP Air Portugal flight landed at the Simón Bolívar international airport in Maiquetía. the portuguese airline reported in early March that it would resume its regular flights to Caracas, with its frequency of two weekly flights.
